COVID-19 Update

The Ivy Street team has been doing a lot of work behind the scenes during lockdown to secure funding, develop new partnerships and assess how we can safely start up sessions for local families.

We are so sad not to be able to run face to face sessions at the moment, but we hope to offer something outdoors after Easter. Please sign up to the newsletter to keep up to date.

We are offering a Zoom online Coffee morning on Thursday mornings, for any families with children under 4 years old. Please contact us is you would like to join in.

If you would prefer a one to one telephone call for a chat, please let us know.

We are so sorry that we cannot meet at the moment. We hope to be back soon.

“I don’t know what I’d do without Ivy Street, my social life would come to an end!”

A group of children and mothers sit around a rainbow striped blanket eating snacks outdoors in the shade of a gazebo, sunlight streams down amongst them.
A little boy with brown curly hair sits at a table. He has a blue painting apron on and using a paintbrush to put blue and orange paint onto a bottle which he holds with his left hand. He is concentrating very hard and has paint all over his hand and the table.


We are heartbroken not be able to continue with Lockdown Babies at the moment.

"Lockdown babies was the first chance I had to meet other mums and babies after my baby was born in the first lockdown...I've made friends, as has my baby girl, that have been really important to us, and I hope we'll stay in touch in years to come!"

Hayley, Mum of 4 month old.
